    .38 Special Cylinder for an EAA Windicator 357 Mag...

    Ok, so I have an EAA Corp Windicator 357 Mag double/single action revolver. I absolutely love it. The barrel is compatible with 357 or .38 special rounds. My issue is I cannot find a .38 cylinder ANYWHERE. I looked on EEA's websote and couldn't find one and I've buzzed all over my area and the internet and cannot find one. I love the revolver as is, but it would be nice to have the .38 special cylinder if I wanted it. Does anyone know where I could find one for a decent price?

    Why would you need a different cylinder?

    Owners manual says the cylinder is 357 mag only.

    Hmmm. I don't have one so I'll certainly defer to anyone who does but I've shot plenty of .38 out of .357s without any issue. Interesting question but I'd bet it's more about some goofy liability instead of any actual reason.

    ...here's the owner's manual: http://eaacorp.com/wp-content/upload...windicator.pdf


    the Windicator's offered in .38 Spl only OR .38SPL/.357 Mag

    ...the .38 Spl will fire in any .357 Mag cylinder, but the .357 will not fit into the .38Spl cylinder...so if yours says .357 on the barrel...it will fire both...enjoy...welcome to the forum

    For future reference, I know of no .357mag revolver that you would not be able to shoot 38spl from. Just be sure to clean cylinders well after extensive 38spl if you plan on using .357 after. The shorter case of 38 can leave a build up in cylinder at the point a 357 bullet would seat inside.

    Just little additional info, the only difference between the 38spl and the 357mag is the case length with the 357mag being .125 or 1/8th inch longer thus preventing the 357 from being fully inserting in a 38 chamber.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
